CHAT: Moving from the White Paper to a Statement of Work

The Center for Humanities and Technology (CHAT) aims to have a total budget of approximately €65 million for research over the next five years. This is the combined value of ‘in kind’ contributions by the CHAT partners (IBM, KNAW, UvA, VU) and ‘new’ funding provided by outside parties (e.g. Dutch government, City of Amsterdam, Province of Noord-Holland).

The first step in the creation of CHAT was the preparation of the White Paper, Meaning and Perspectives in the Digital Humanities1 (included with this call) which sets out the broad research agenda. The next step is to come to a Statement of Work (SoW) that comprises more detailed and specific research projects that will lead to the realization of the agenda laid out in the White Paper. The CHAT Steering Committee is currently working on obtaining funding for CHAT, so be aware that external funds have not yet been secured. A good SoW with a strong portfolio of projects is essential in acquiring funds.
